You’ll Get a Trained Animal
Adopting a shelter is also an effective way to stop cruelty in mass breeding facilities and backyard breeders. These cruel practices repeatedly impregnate female dogs in unsanitary conditions, causing them to produce litter after litter until they are destroyed.
You’ll Save Money
Adopting from an animal shelter is often less expensive than buying a pet from a breeder or pet store. Adoption fees cover the costs of vaccines, spay or neuter surgeries and microchipping, which can add up quickly if you buy from a breeder.
Additionally, most shelters and rescues do extensive screening before placing their animals for adoption. It includes health exams, behavioural assessments and detailed written documents that outline an animal’s personality and likes and dislikes.
Many animal shelters offer low-cost or no-fee adoptions, such as senior and special needs pets, to encourage more people to adopt their animals. It helps keep their costs down, allowing them to help more animals find homes and save more lives.
